We had a big girl moment today. Analiese has been asking to have her ears pierced for several months now. I've been putting it off, mostly to make sure that she was serious enough to sit through both ears being pierced and not jet after the first.
Last night she asked (begged) for the thousandth time, so today we had a girls day out. She was giddy all the way there and completely confident until they put the piercing gun to her ear. That's when she slouched down so quickly that she almost got a jewel in her head. We did that three more times before she finally let them put the little blue studs in. Once it was done, she was very pleased with herself and her bea-u-ti-ful (said in a very high pitched voice) new earrings. She is very beautiful, my big girl, growing up.
